Default F14 Sizing

I am hoping maybe some wheel gurus can help me out here. I am looking at having a set of F14's made for my 5.0 but need some help with sizing and offsets.

I want to run a 19x9 in the front with a 255/40/19 and 19x11 in the rear with
315/30/19. I also plan on runing the Eibach Pro Kit springs and struts. The company said to get an nice flush aggressive look I will need to run a +55 in the rear and +35 in the front. Does this sound right or should I go with a diff setup?

I can't help on the 19s but I just put on 20" Forgestar F14s on my stang last week. They look amazing and the offest were +35 in the front and +48 in the rear. I would say a 315 in the rear is way too wide but that's just my opinion. I'm running a 255/35 in front and 295/30 in the back with Toyo Proxes 4 (Amazing All-season) tire, but they are really more of a summer tire with how grippy they have been.

I also suggest going with the eibach sportline kit which is more of an agressive drop. The pro kit didn't give me the exact look I wanted, but again, I'm not really complaining...it's low enough I guess. Pic below! Enjoy!

What is the width of your 20's in the front and rear? Do you have any rear panel pics to show how flush they are to the edge?

im running 9 in front and 10.5 in rear. I've got a couple shots that might help you but they aren't the best. I need to take more, but am waiting until the 302 splitter gets installed and the lights are smoked.

I like that. Wonder how much it would change if I ran an 11 in the back.

After doing some research on your BA setup I can tell my wallet is not up for the challenge. I love your ride though.

Are the rear wheels the deep concave? They look like they have more concave than the 20x11's most guys have. How are you smoking out the rear tails? Yours look simply awesome.

Thanks man! You're actually correct about the concaveness of the wheel. That is why I went with 10.5 in the rear instead of 11. A forgestar distributor showed me a nissan GTR with the 10.5s in the rear and I loved the look. You get that deeper dish look. The rest is history.

I ordered the tint from American Muscle to smoke all the lights. Should be pretty simple but I have to wait for a day that gets above 70 degrees as the directions read. I'm in Atlanta so I won't be waiting long. It's actually 71 today but sadly raining.

Spring is right around the corner for us, shouldn't have to wait too long for spring around the ATL.

wantgt,

We specialize in Forgestar Wheels for the Mustang so I may be able to assist. The offsets are accurate, you could even go lower in the rear with 19" and an Eibach Pro Kit. What brand of tires are you planning to run?
